Cebu-Bohol 4D4N Getaway

I booked a flight to Cebu on a whim last year. Cebu City is the capital of Cebu Province, an island in the Visayas Region of the Philippines; I wanted to see it. The city is reminiscent of Metro Manila, but a cleaner, less chaotic, more polite version thereof.

Hiking Mt. Nagsasa 5

Mt. Nagsasa, found between Mt. Cinco Picos and Mt. Balingkilat, is known as a friendlier mountain than its two neighbors in terms of trek difficulty and distance to summit. The trail itself is easy and the view is great; what makes the hike harder is the heat.

San Antonio, Zambales

When we visited Zambales, I must say that I was blown away by the beauty of the mountains and white sand beaches. It is the perfect getaway because you can try different fun activities, such as hiking, camping, swimming, island hopping, as well as sightseeing.

How to Beat the Summer Heat

As much as I would like to travel all the time, months can go by without me doing it — mostly due to insufficient funds, but also because I summer is my lazy time. For most people, summer is the best time to go to the beach, but for me, it’s the time to relax.

Anusarn Market Cabaret

When planning our Thailand trip, my sister and I decided that we definitely had to see the ladyboys live. Watching the performance in Bangkok was out of the question because we were only there for a day. The alternative we found was the Anusarn Market Cabaret.

During our Thailand trip, we spent the first two nights at Pridi Hostel Bangkok. We stayed in a nice private room since there was one available. The room was equipped with a working air conditioner, towels, a small table, stools, a trash can, and a towel rack.

Arca’s Yard Café Baguio

If you’re looking for a quiet, pretty place to read comfortably while surrounded by nature, books, cultural artifacts, and lots of natural light, then Arca’s Yard Café Baguio is perfect for you. It took a while before I finally went there, but I am glad I did.

Laksmi Bali Agro Tourism

We looked at the luwak and coffee plantation at Laksmi Bali Agro Tourism. A guide met us at the parking lot and offered to tour us for free. The tour guide was very patient and answered all our questions about the plantation and the luwak, an Asian palm civet.
